Good that nothing happened to you Rick. I must congratulate you to the newest videos. You show so perfect how to mount a frame, fillet and glass it into place and if one looks at it several times it stays in the mind and having to do it on ones own boat will be just as easy as you show it.

If the farm jack is the same as I call a handyman jack then they are dangerous :!: Very handy and quick to use but bad things happen in a hurry with them. The handles have been known to supply dentists with new sport cars :roll: Glad you are ok :!:

Rick,
Saw the new FAQ posting on YouTube. Great stuff.
And I have one more question. You mentioned the tanks but what kind of range do you expect with your fuel capacity?


PS although I've used it before the YouTube button doesn't seem to work right now.

Tony, you need to use the short link from the “share” in YouTube. Should be something like https://YouTu.be/qqqq

Thanks fellas. Appreciate the feedback. It helps keep me going!

As for Terrulian's question. I suspect fuel burn, if my calcs are correct somewhere around 1 gph @ 7 kts. That would give us somewhere around 770 nautical miles in perfect conditions. I suppose there'll be some fine tuning involved, prop pitch etc. before we see anything near that. Canal cruising involves a lot of stop & go & sitting & waiting so mileage will vary. We'll probably run out of fresh water and fill the waste tanks long before we'll run out of fuel!

So today was fruitful. Managed to get the skeg attached!

Thanks for watching.

Cheers!
Yours Aye! Rick

Apologize for the absense. Still plugging away. Lemme see, since last time I frigged with the rudder shaft tub & backing block. Seen here upside down.
Image

I glued that sucker into place this morning. Took plenty of navel gazing and brain noodle work to get it where I wanted it. It's in there now and it ain't coming out!
Image

Yesterday while I was waiting for a small job to cure I puttered with the Python drive and shaft. Just had to see what it looks like hooked up. Python drive bolted to the special bulkhead.

And here the 1 meter long extended shaft. There's a CV joint at each end.

Hey Rick :D
Too hot to work. I took a day vacation yesterday, got there under the shelter, screwed a few fasteners then left. Drip sweating when only thinking about something and almost dangerous - just about vomited :roll: Must have been ++45 C. Today the same...and tomorrow. Man, we beeatch and complain come winter, then this :lol:

Not sure how the guys work and deal with this down south. I still have a box full of spares (ports, fittings, etc...for you to look at if interested).
